    no one was complaining in watertown. no one was complaining in newton. no one was complaining in cambridge. i live in boston, grew up three miles from where this kid was found, used to live on norfolk street in cambridge where these dudes lives, and know people who live all around all of those areas. and let me assure you: precisely zero people were complaining about the police today, or at any time this week. in fact, right now there is a general feeling of goodwill toward the police that i dont even remember after 9/11, or at any other time in my life. and let me say further: i am not usually one to fawn over police. in fact, i rarely cut them a break at all. but today they are heros in this city, and for good reason.

    this diary is absurd.

      whose opinions matter to me are the people in the boston area. i'm also often critical of police, when there is good reason, but from what i've seen- particularly from boston area kossacks- this was an excellent performance by the police, under the most extremely dangerous circumstances.
